    Great looking wagons and many thanks for the compliments. Always thought the wagons were cool but never had one. This car was a Southern California desert car and that made the build so much easier. The only rust repair on the whole car was underneath the battery.
    The interior should be done before the end of the year in all leather (love that smell) plans on having it in the basement of Cobo Hall this year. But it was mostly built for long road trips.

  23. Chuck and the Strange Days Garage crew built one of my all time favorite wagons,there are so many modifications and yet it almost looks as though you could have bought it as is at your local Ford Dealer back in '53. HRP

    My! How times have changed.
    Bear with me while I make a momentary left turn, and then we can return to the great photo examples.

    Back in those 1950's (+40's, +60's) days it was actually painful for me to be seen driving the '55 Ford or the '59 Plymouth wagons my daddy dragged home. If you didn't have a no-post hardtop, you were a total goober in my pea brain and the equally limited brains of most budding drivers. To drive 'em was a "2-bager" experience, one bag for my head and one for the wagon. But now, in my mature, hopefully wiser years, I see these examples and I'm all "Oooo! I like that! I would drive that!! I want that!!!

    The Ford was that patina green, 3 on the tree with the woody trim and the Plymouth was a white over black and had the push button TF. How lovely they look in my mind's eye now. And I remember some very happy times in both of them. :rolleyes:
